The Role of Universities in Sustainable, Just & Inclusive Cities

An Initiative of the International Place-Based University Network
International Place-Based University Network: Academically Based, Globally Minded Community Engagement

Post-industrial cities are crucibles of reinvention and innovation. Those that have successfully navigated the sunsetting of industrial production have creatively reoriented to intellectual technology, advanced manufacturing, business services, and life science innovations. And yet, the challenges that followed industrial decline—loss of population, unemployment, and destructive urban redevelopment strategies—continue to reverberate.

As the founding members of the International Place-Based University Network, Newcastle University and the University of Pittsburgh are hosting this conference. The goal is to share best practices for community and civic engagement as well as to explore potential international collaborations for academically based community engagement.
